Nowadays, Industrial development in Indonesia continues to increase. Some industries in Indonesia are quite big, such as the building materials industry, the automotive industry, the textile industry, the cosmetics industry, up to the food and beverage industry. One of the industries that continues to increase every year is the food and beverage industry.
With the development in the food and beverage industry every year, the other industries that also develop is the food packaging industry. Today, many consumers are choosing environmentally friendly packaging, making food and beverage companies think twice to replace the packaging. Consumers and investors prefer company that concern about environmental problems. Consumers are willing to pay more for goods or products that care about environmental issues.

However, the effort to make environmentally friendly packaging continues. Some companies have developed environmentally friendly packaging. For instance, a company named HelloFresh has made a recyclable food packaging.
The United States agricultural research department has developed packaging for edible and recycled food packaging made from casein, one of the proteins found in milk. Several companies in the world also continue to innovate to be able to find replacement materials for plastic food packaging.
Eagle Flexible company uses water-based ink material because the material does not create harmful organic compounds that make it environmentally friendly. Eagle Flexible is a food packaging company that already concern about environmental issues and want to create environmentally friendly food packaging.
In the past few years, Eagle company offered environmentally friendly food packaging to 100 companies. However, only one company that choose to use this kind of food packaging. Nowadays, many companies have finally chosen to use environmentally friendly materials and recyclable materials.
When there is more company that use environmentally friendly materials, the production cost of making this kind of food packaging will decrease. Therefore, consumers should also continue to choose products that are environmentally friendly and recyclable.
